Seeing the anarchic stylings of a surreal, almost dadaist, comedian whacked out of his brain on horse-tranquiliser strength painkillers after his motorbike accident, that’s what. Imagine the strangest scenario you can involving Stevie Wonder and female lobster groupies – I guarantee that Ross Noble is weirder than you.
felabilongtigtog and I had been looking forward to Ross Noble’s show for quite some weeks, having enjoyed his stints on ABC-TV’s Spicks and Specks immensely. We knew we’d have a good time, but we didn’t think we would actually laugh until we cried.
Poor Ross showed the X-ray of his dislocated shoulder before it was fixed up – it appears to be a rotated and impacted fracture of the humeral head, distally displaced approximately 8 cm so his rotator cuff will have been torn to buggery. I think this is the worst humeral fracture-dislocation I’ve ever seen – it’ll probably end up in textbooks. I’m impressed that he only cancelled one show.
He’s on for the rest of the week as part of the Cracker Comedy Festival. Catch him if you can.
We’re going to see another weird comedian from the British Isles later this month – Dylan Moran. Will he make us cry laughing too?
